Default Zone or ProComp stage 1 - 6"

Hi everyone,

I've been lurking for sometime now and i have a question I would like to get some input on. I have the opportunity to get either a zone or pro comp stage 1 6"lift kit for almost the same price. Which would you choose and why?

This will be going on my 2012 ram 1500.

Any input greatly appreciated.

I recently had the pro comp stage 1 6" put on my '15 2500...granted, it may be different from your 1500s suspension, but it actually made my ride quality a bit smoother than stock. I would go with Pro Comp...but just my opinion.

For a 1500, Zone hands down. The overall setup to achieve the lift is better IMO. The use full rear lift coils in the rear end where ProComp essentially uses a large spacer that's installed under your stock coils.

A 6" Zone kit with 5" rear coils and Bilsteins set at 2.1" is by far the most common setup that I recommend to guys and what they end up going with.

Brandon, that was one of the main things I keep hearing and that's why I asked. I should note that the lift is merely fit looks. . It's a pavement princess. I would also like to say that I don't foresee bilsteins anytime soon, if ever, just do to cost. Would you still recommend the zone?

Yes sir I'd still go with Zone over ProComp. Still a better kit even for a pavement princess. Zone also has a good warranty and is backed by the same company that owns BDS and Fox Shocks so there's a lot standing behind the product.

If you aren't going to do Bilsteins then I'd recommend a 6" kit with 3" rear coils to have the truck sitting level.
